Portia de Rossi now has a new ABC role and fans are really excited that she will be on one of their favorite shows. On Tuesday, Variety shared the news that Ellen DeGeneres other half will be showing up on the series "Scandal." This is going to be great to see her on the show but it is not a long-term role for Portia. Any actress would love a role on this series.

Ellen was actually the one who got to break the news to fans. She didn't do it on the show though which is what viewers would expect. Instead she sent out a tweet letting fans know about it. Social networking is a great way to connect with fans and Ellen has figured that out. Here is what she had to say, "So annoying when people brag on twitter & that's why I'm not tweeting that Portia just signed on to do a top secret arc on "Scandal". Oops." Of course this was her way of bragging, but everyone loves Ellen and didn't mind the way that she did it at all.

"Scandal" will return to ABC on September 25. Fans can't wait to see this Shonda Rhimes show return. There is no news about what role Portia de Rossi will play so hopefully that will come out soon. She will have a part that is top secret according to Ellen. Also the fact that she said it was an arc means it won't be forever but she should be around for more than one episode of the show which is great news.

Don't miss Portia de Rossi when she returns to "Scandal" on September 25. Fans will have to just wait and see how soon she shows up on the series and how long she gets to stick around for on this show.
